Internship are now closed for the summer.

Hire KC is the largest provider of paid summer internships in the KC region. As we approached Summer 2020, and its devastating impact from COVID-19, we quickly pivoted to an all virtual experience, and successfully connected dozens of interns to a variety of virtual internships at the City of Kansas City, Missouri and local nonprofit organizations.

This year Hire KC launched a youth opportunity relief program to help give students access to skill-building virtual experiences that allow them to earn while they learn.

Check out more about the Work Ready Institute, Skill Builders Series, and Leadership Series, and coming soon – Client-Connected Projects, and Focus Groups.

We believe an internship is a professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work related to a career pathway. And, all Hire KC internships are paid. Full stop.
